Time For Whoopie

If you follow my other blog at all, you know my love of whoopie pies. I have made over 30 versions and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I first made this version for a Halloween party last year and they are one of my favorites...by far. Think of an oatmeal cream pie taken to another level. 

I think that oatmeal and butterscotch just play off of each other so well. the flavor combination is a perfect marriage. Scotchies are a cookie that I have always loved, they remind me of my father. He loves oatmeal and butterscotch. 

These are really simple to make and will satisfy a crowd and are the perfect fall treat.

1 box yellow cake mix
1/3 cup veggie oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
1 cup Quaker Oatmeal (not instant)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 packet butterscotch pudding
1 cup whipping cream
4-6 oz cream cheese softened
(see notes below if you want cool whip version instead)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, water, oatmeal and brown sugar in bowl.   
Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)

Bake 8-9 minutes

Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes

Beat softened cream cheese on low for a min or until fluffy, add dry pudding packet & two tbsp of whipping cream, beat on low till pudding is fully incorporated into cream cheese and add remaining whipping cream, turn speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form. Let set in fridge for at least an hour before frosting. 

Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of frosting in the center.  Press another cookie on top (this will spread the icing out to the edge).

Notes*** the second time I made these, I couldn't find real oats so I used 2 packets of the quakers instant maple & brown sugar, I omitted the extra brown sugar. Both versions were pretty good, but the real oats give it more...depth(can a cookie have depth? haha)

and if you want the quick frosting version, just make the pudding w/1 cup cold milk and after about 20 min in the fridge, mix it with cool whip. Both are good. if I say so myself. and I do;)
